It’s finally here! On the last day of winter break too! Not bad in terms of timing haha, especially given that I tried my best to cram as many shows I could watch in the past two weeks. Admittedly I really only managed to watch 3.5 shows in total, but I’m really happy with my … More A 2013 Year-end Dramafest Reflection: Quality Over Quantity.
As promised because okay, I feel rather guilty at having abandoned the show for quite a bit while traveling – here’s an overall review because I’ve finally managed to finish Jang Ok-jung, Live in Love! Let’s jump right in. 1) The Storytelling When I think of this show in perspective, I understand why the storytelling … More Jang Ok-jung, Live In Love: An Overall Review.
So I just spent 8.5 straight hours on the senior design report. By the time I’d (finally) gotten to the end of it at 840 PM, I literally went, “Wait… Where did the sun go? Was there even sunlight today?!” Legit, I did not even realize that Housemate #2 had left the apartment for 2 … More Pimp That Scene: Part 2 of Episodes 13 & 14 of Jang Ok-jung, Live In Love!
Truthfully, sometimes I wonder if I am better off watching Jang Ok-jung, Live In Love through a marathon. Perhaps if I do it that way, I’ll be able to really ascertain the coherence of the story line because I admit to being guilty of (my) inconsistent responses to the show. The weekly gap is magnified … More Pimp That Scene: Part 1 of Episodes 13 & 14 of Jang Ok-jung, Live In Love!
No Pimp That Scene entry this week because I am not impressed. No, I don’t mean it unkindly, nor do I mean to pull the plug and call Jang Ok-jung, Live In Love crap or a lost cause. Not at all, given that the first half of the show really has been solid. But this … More Timeout: So, Jang Ok-jung…
It’s Friday (my favorite day) and schoolwork is not as hectic as usual this week so I figured I’ll triple-pow and just publish three entries today. This Pimp That Scene entry will be long however, so please do sit back and tread with your mind switched on!

Something new I’m trying out, another blurb. It came at random, thought of primarily because as much as I love to assess dramas episode-by-episode, quite frankly I don’t even have time to watch more than two right now that episodic impressions are just… currently impossible. However! Pictures always speak a thousand words, no? For this … More Pimp That Scene: Episode 8 of Jang Ok-jung, Live in Love.
Six episodes in and ladies and gents, we have right here… CRACK. I don’t know what to call this entry, so I’m just going to settle for this being a second impression of Jang Ok-jung, Live In Love. I’ve been reading plenty about the ratings-race and the sometimes-petty complaints being directed towards this show. I … More Second Impression: In Defense of Jang Ok-jung, Live In Love.
Be very proud (happy?) – I’m back in Kdramaland! Well, sort of aha. After a good 1-month lull of not having any inclination, what more motivation, to pick up (lots of) shows I was watching prior to the lull, I’ve finally broken the spell by watching… Jang Ok Jung, Live in Love, hence this first … More Jang Ok Jung, Live In Love: A First Impression.
